Aldan or QA-1? (sorry about the misplaced post)

My 57 BelAir is getting its 4-link started next week and my suspension guy made a face when I said I thought I wanted QA-1....he said Aldan Eagle all the way. My ride will mostly be a street toy, show cruiser and the ocasional local track runner. Even with the street nature he said they will give a better ride, espcially if I load it up with friends.
Any thoughts? At a quick glance the Aldans are about $100 more....oh I'm talking rear coilover here. The small blck makes about 500HP.

I've read QA-1 has a QC issue with their performance replacement shocks for late model Mustangs. More than one person stated this (leaks developing after a while), but don't know more details. This may have been resolved by now, but food for thought.
I think I'd opt for the Aldans as a first choice (in this price range), and maybe the Chassisworks Varishock as a 2nd? No personal experience with either, just read'n and learn'n from others.
